weekly photo challenge: nostalgic

Even though the necessity for lighthouses diminished before my time, I still feel rather nostalgic whenever I see one. Maybe it’s just the history major in me, but I can’t help but mourn some of the losses brought on by technology. I mean, lighthouses have existed since ancient times and now electronic navigation systems have rendered them practically useless. Don’t get me wrong… I cannot imagine life without my iPhone (and its much-used navigation app). But, it does make me a little sad that lighthouses are now merely historic restoration projects and objects of symbolism rather than true beacons for safe harbor.
